Even if you've never soldered before, this workshop will give you the confidence in two hours. If you do have experience, you'll learn how to solder better, and walk away with a fun and unique instrument, plus a copy of Moldover's album.
Bonus! This workshop takes place in the MakerMobile, a Vancouver original. MakerMobile is a unique multifunctional mobile makerspace, laboratory, workshop and classroom, making hands-on learning opportunities for people of all ages and from all walks of life. It empowers people to create with technology rather than simply consume it! VIVO thanks MakerMobile’s support in staging this event.
Following the workshop, Moldover will give an artist presentation on his Playable Packaging designs, as well as his performance instruments, The Mojo, The Robocaster, and The MC1. This presentation is a separate event, with entrance by donation, taking place in VIVO's studio, 9pm-10pm.

Disillusioned with “press play DJs”, Moldover fans eagerly welcome electronic music’s return to virtuosity, improvisation, and emotional authenticity. Dig deeper into Moldover’s world and you’ll uncover a subversive cultural icon who is jolting new life into physical media with Playable Packaging, sparking beautiful collaborations with his custom Jamboxes, and drawing wave after wave of followers with an open-source approach to sharing his methods and madness.
When & Where
VIVO Media Arts
VIVO MEDIA ARTS CENTRE, incorporated in 1973 as the Satellite Video Exchange Society (SVES), is Vancouver’s oldest media arts access centre. VIVO continues to fulfill its founding vision by directly supporting independent artists, community-based producers and activists to develop and exchange their skills in a supportive environment. Our members gather around the tools and material means of production to invent new understandings, new genres and new friendships. Reflecting both the diversity of contemporary technologies and the symbiotic communities that coalesce around new forms of knowledge and creativity, our programming fosters formal, aesthetic and critical approaches to media arts practice. VIVO builds an audience of makers, organizers and critics through artists in residence, lectures, workshops, performances, exhibitions and curatorial and archival research. As an integral artist run centre in Vancouver, our resources and facilities will continue to inform and influence engagement in all levels of media art investment.
